st. patrick's weekend. >> neil: funny how you know that. >> next tuesday when he's installed, we'll be latino. >> neil: it's amazing. i was thinking, it's such an incredibly rich place. i remember the stories of pope john paul ii who couldn't believe the or nature -- ornateness of the wealth and being surrounded by that made him uncomfortable. he is sworn to a life of poverty. askews the limo and cook. how is he going to adjust? >> i hope he brings with him a stable of the people whom he trust ins buenos aires. there does need to be a change in the vatican in the curia and bureaucracy and i wouldn't

depend on the people in place right now. nicely enconsed. i hope he brings some of his trusted friends from argentina. >> neil: but he has a very nice image, a very soft-spoken man. he has scandals to deal with, though a lot of them -- a financial scandal, the likes of which even italian authorities are pressing european unions still pressing. >> they had to get somebody from the outside. getting somebody from the outside is the only way to change some of the things. the bureaucracy needs shaken up and some other elements of the catholic church. >> neil: bill, it's always so nice. especially on a day like this. we know the formal mass for the pope will be march 19th, next tuesday. and we do know that a very simple man from a very simple past has now assumed the highest

[ applause ] >> the conclave was to give rome a bishop. it looks like my brother, the cardinal, went to find him at the end of the world almost. but here we are. [ applause
2:03 pm
>> kimberly: hello, everyone. welcome to this special edition of "the five." i'm kimberly guilfoyle. it's 5:00 in new york city. 10:00 p.m. in vatican city, where you saw a new pope has been selected to lead the cath rick church. his name is cardinal jorge bergoglio. archbishop of argentina. he is 76 years 08 and a jesuit. chosen to be be called pope francis. it took a little over 24 hours for the cardinals to pick the pontiff in the:clave. now live to vatican city where fox's shepard smith is standing by. what can you tell us about pope francis? >> we learned about him together. we had group of 16 cardinals we were watching for. eighth on the list. not many people around here who were very much in the know in papal activity thought there was a possibility with notable exceptions, including our own father jonathan
2:04 pm
morris, who said if they don't get a pope in the morning session today, watch out for this man from argentina. the first thing that anyone said is he rides a bus. he make his own food. he washes the feet of injured. the first thing he did was ask the people to pray for him. and then got on his hands and knees to accept the prayers. i think he can safely be called a man of the people. a man of great humility. a man who would take the church to the population center, which is unquestionably without any doubt latin america, where half a million -- 501 million catholics reside. it is an astounding number when the italians, leer in europe, 56 million. the italians have 28 cardinals and latin america has 19. latin america now has the pope.
2:05 pm
he will be inaugurated, we believe, on sunday. and the church moves forward with the overriding goal of spreading the word of god. reading the scriptures and bringing more people in the fold. it seems like here in rome tonight, a beautiful evening. >> kimberly: interesting background that you highlight that this is a man of the people, a man from italian immigrants so he has roots in italy as well, which should please those that wanted someone to get back to the papal roots of rome. representation there is felt as well. also a man of jesuit education. that historic that this is the first time that they have had a pope selected that was of a jesuit background. tell us about that. >> disciplinarian. very, he is a well-studied man. there hasn't been a pope outside of europe in 1,000 years. think of that. latin america with all of its
2:06 pm
people, who were so faithful to the catholic church, dwindling numbers across europe. dwindling numbers in north america, now latin america. the pope hails from there. there were a lot of tears tonight in st. peters square. it saw interviews on italian networks and beyond with people from argentina who said we are here just because we happen to be in rome. we are catholic and we wanted to come see. it saw a young woman say but i never even had any dreams it would be our pope. our humble man. our 76-year-old. who so many of them seem to know. rode the bus and made his own food and really was one with the fold. a new direction. it certainly seems like that. more than anything. great hope of the catholic church. >> kimberly: we are going to bring in dana perino who had a question for you. >> hi, dana. >> dana: hi. you covered so many world events. this one to me, watching the
2:07 pm
crowd was of great interest. the joyful feeling that they expressed and how long they stayed and stood and waited. i know it was cold. could you through your observation to tell us what it's like to be amongst the people that gathered there. >> i was here in 2005 when benedict xvi was inaugurated. the difference between this and all of the papal inauguration that preceding it in the lifetime and well beyond that there was no mourning. there was no death no, funeral, no crying highs in the street. none of that. time for reflection. focusing on the challenges that the church has faced and will continue to face. great deal of anticipation. we had fun with amy kellogg who called it a period of great suspense, which is catholic nomenclature. that's really what it was.
2:08 pm
as everyone came together, not really knowing, most thinking, the odds on favorite was, of course, the cardinal from milan. when the name came up and they said his name in latin, everyone looking around, realizing it's the man from argentina. and the faces were amazing. one thing we are a couple of blocks away because of our studio if you will up on the roof, st. peter's back behind us. as i was looking down to the streets below, seven stories up, seeing people come with babies in hand. cars all flowing in that direction toward the basilica behind us. exciting time. you can't take it out of the context of rome and italy. the credit is down, tourism is down, suffering the worst weather in 21 years according to the local immediate roll gist. the economy is hurting badly. this was a jolt for the
2:09 pm
economy. or seemed to be. italians react to the man as we think he will? he is of italian heritage, and so many people in argentina have italian roots. 50-60% of the population, i have now read, in argentina with italian linage in one way or another. this is bringing together two worlds. worlds where the papacy resided forever and where the catholic people's numbers are the highest. it's interesting congrlegration and they hope this is the dawn of the new day for the church. they could use the hope and inspiration. >> kimberly: we're going to bring in eric bolling. >> eric: hey, shep. cardinal begala chose the name pope francis. the first francis, not the second or third. the first time. he came out and the first words he spoke very informal.
2:10 pm
he's said to have lived in a small apartment in argentina where he could have lived in a palace. his informal, humbleness, does it give us insight to what his papalsy will bring? >> those in the know seem to believe it would. pope john paul ii in 1978, his self-deprecating umore led us to know the man he was going to be. cardinal rathisnger in 2005 gave up how he would govern. that's not exactly the right word. how he would lead. it would be outside all that we know about this man to suggest he would be anything but a humble man of the people. i can't find any notice of anyone else ever having done anything like this.
2:11 pm
to ask the people for prayers for him. vowing to accept the prayer. that is as humble as a man who will lead 1.2 billion catholics or 1.2 billion anything of an expression as i have ever seen. i can't find occurrence of this ever. there is a call from the catholic church from many people around the world saying if you open up, let us be a part of the process, some of the problems which the highiarty in the church, the -- hierarchy might not exist. if you could tran parent and more about the people it's possible i think in the occasion that the cardinals heard that message. they responded with a great man of humility. he lived in a small apartment
2:12 pm
and he still does. he doesn't own a car. he takes a bus and makes his own food. can't say those things about myself or any of the colleagu colleagues. this is a humble man. he lives of and with the people. he is here to help the catholic people restore the catholic church. if so, that is good for everybody, catholic and otherwise. >> kimberly: bring in bob beckel. >> bob: hey, shep. >> good evening, bob. >> bob: this is jesuits and jesuits are the educator order of catholic church and they spend the most amount of time before they're ordained in the process of becoming a priest. the catholic school system in the united states and for that matter throughout the world has questioned about whether it's going to survive in some cases, in certain cities in the united states. strong enough in areas of the words. is this jesuit background of
2:13 pm
him indicate he will put emphasis on education -- not just catholic education, but education as part of his message to people? >> his recent history says that is what he will do. i can't know what he will do. i'm not catholic. but my experience with the catholic school system has been as follows -- for instance, in memphis there were two big catholic schools. there is now one. it is designing in membership. this is a man who spent much of his life educating and being educated. you can educate outside the four wall osafter classroom. from all i have been able to read quickly about the man, that is what he has been doing all his life. he understood the importance of education. with that education he did not join an elite group or act in an elite way or conduct himself in a manner that some
2:14 pm
might associate with high knowledge. he got information and was able to bring the context and perspective to life experiences and shared them from people, not from a high place. not from a mountain. not of a voice looking down but shared level to level. he picked up children and talked to them. he worshiped with, not worshi worshiped to people. that is part of the education process. it is within this church. with history as our guide, that is what he will be. educator and man of the peopl people. >> brian: great job to bring the excitement of the event. this was special when we waited 45 minutes to see the pope walk out. pope john paul brought vatican to the world. he travelled everywhere and made himself seem accessible to the youth of another generation. this pope, pope francis is 76 years old i get the sense he
2:15 pm
will do the same thing. >> i wouldn't surprised. it asked a number of people in the rome news room and they asked their contacts whether they believe he will be a man that travels. there is no consensus on that matter. the consensus seemed to be he would try to first bring unit unity. the opening of the conclave, master of ceremonies as they refer to him lightly suggested they should all put aside their differences and it was widely believed this might be a nod toward the separation that happened between the curia and the reformers. is it possible he will spend time bringing unified message, something that the church desperately needs. i don't think this is a day to reflect on the scandals but that is something that will be one of the things he will tackle in the archbishop going. there are pressing matters for the church.
2:16 pm
you to get your house in order before you can spread the good word. from those around here who are watching this for many decades, it sounds as if that is the feeling. that said, you don't know what he will do. this won't be a running around the world, as much as a humble discussion, sometimes one-on-one with people he thinks he might be able to help. >> kimberly: talk about what might have been going on, the thinking of the cardinals that they had an enormous decision to make, talking about the future of the church. outreach, to third world countries, the large roman catholic population and latin america. choosing someone that was a balance between the curia and the reformers. he seems to be somewhat perhaps they might have thought was a very strong compromise. >> compromise is the perfect
2:17 pm
word. going in to this, it was all of us the beliefs as communicators get our guidance. those who studied this and scholars of this, there would be a struggle internally between the men of the curia, who the administration, if you will, of the catholic church, which by many people's observation have not done the perfect job in recent months and years dealing with the organization. the scandal, leaks, papers taken out and published before they realize it happened. those are not signs of administration that is working perfectly. the thinking was that the decision would be do you go with someone from inside the current administration, inside the curia, or do you go way outside, voice outside the box? timothy cardinal dolan of new york is an example. we didn't even consider, it was not expressed to us by those who guide us we might consider someone who can strandal that line. who can in and of himself embody a compromise.
2:18 pm
that is who this man is. is he a puppet of the curia? no. is he puppet of the reformers? no. it's my understanding he is his own man, advisor, after advisor here said to us he is a humble man of god. he's described as a saint type of person. maybe that's what the church needs. >> kimberly: it sounds like someone both sides could trust and safe and confidence, and ability to lead with humility and self-sacrifice not trying to promote one side over the other. >> eric: the white smoke came up after five votes. people here said it must be the odds-on favorite, cardinal from italy, from milan. >> that's what we said, too. >> eric: right. any surprise -- you shocked to see the name come up?
2:19 pm
>> a book of all the papers we have been going through. here it is. these are the blue cards on all the people on whom i have been studying. with all about them and how they ruled and what they have done with people. he was number eight on a list of i think 17. no one said watch for this one, watch for that one. it was a surprise. one thing we were watching will they go with someone who is a social reformer? or will he stick with the moral path that the church always followed? would there be inclusion for instance of the hot topics you imagine. gay marriage, abortion, birth control. anyone looking for change along those lines will not find it in this man. a good and easy google.
2:20 pm
anything against same-sex, very much against contraceptions. the quotes are out there. you can look at them. for someone looking for change that way, they will not find it. for catholics who want to stick to the moral compass that guided us for century, you will find it in this man. >> kimberly: that was probably pleasing to the curia. strong social stance. >> dana: i know we are running out of time but i want to ask you to tribe how he might be able to help on the world stage when it comes to lune rights -- human rights. church had challenge in china. where people want to worship freely and up against a government that is not allowing that. do you think this new man, the new pope, pope francis will address it effect lively? >> from what i read, it appea appears that that the is the conversation he'd approach with shoulders down, humility and firm compass.
2:21 pm
freedom to worship the god of your choice is a basic human right. that is how he described it. i'm confident that is the message he will deliver. how effective he will be in a country like china rem be seen. but if that is the message, it seems like the kind of message with which, i don't know, we can identify. >> kimberly: thank you. shepard smith live from vatican city, 10:19:00 p.m. in the evening. we'll check back with shep later in the program. much more to come on this historic day, as the world welcomes in a new pope, pope francis.
